Research from Communities Scotland

This project was commissioned by Communities Scotland to establish a framework setting out the skills and competencies required for effective community regeneration, and to assess skill gaps and existing learning mechanisms. For the purposes of this exercise community regeneration is defined as ‘intervention in disadvantaged localities and/or targeted at disadvantaged groups, aimed at economic, social and/or physical improvement, and involving some form of partnership working’.
The research covered all the types of individual who are involved in regeneration partnerships and projects, and takes into account both their diversity and the needs that they have in common.

This project was initiated by Communities Scotland to establish:
● a coherent framework setting out the skills and competencies required for effective community regeneration
● a tool to help people assess their own learning needs, individually or in partnerships
● a better understanding of what skills gaps exist, and
● an overview of the adequacy of existing learning mechanisms and priorities for the development of new ones.
